Yankees Make Upside Play with Hicks Trade

In an exchange of relatively well-regarded, but not yet established big leaguers, the Minnesota Twins traded outfielder Aaron Hicks to the New York Yankees for catcher John Ryan Murphy. The swap makes sense for both sides, with the Twins (who ranked 29th in the majors in catcher Wins Above Replacement last season) adding a backstop […]
